We visited in March, so it was not very busy at the resort. Grounds are just beautiful, from the villas, to the pool, and hot tubs! We stayed in a hillside villa, and it was beautiful! Spacious, with a balcony, and fireplace. Beautifully decorated. The restaurant was just ok, not enjoyable to return more than once, so if you are going to be there several days, that’s pretty much the only option, as other restaurants are not close by. They do sell many items in the store however. Evening s’mores by the fire was a blast, and the games located around the property were fun for even my adult boys! I would return to the Rush Creek Lodge again!

Would love to return
A year on and I still pinch myself that we were able to stay at Rush Creek Lodge. We stayed in May 2019 and with the late snowfall it made our whole Yosemite experience one to never forget. Sitting by the firing toasting marshmallows and chatting with the staff and guests in the tavern are now great memories. Staff have great knowledge of the area and recommendations of good trails to go on.
Would definitely stay again when we hopefully get back to Yosemite.

We were driving to Yosemite and happened to see this place in Groveland. We stopped in to check it out and were so impressed that we made a reservation to stay there on our way home from Yosemite in a few days. Terry and Joaquin at the front desk were very pleasant and answered all our questions. It is about one hour from the valley in Yosemite. It is very beautiful and peaceful. The creek runs through the property with a waterfall and pond and places to sit and enjoy it. We ate dinner and breakfast there and the food was fabulous! We even asked to speak to the chef, Toni, to compliment him on the delicious food. Our server was Cody and he couldn’t have been nicer. He was friendly and efficient and gave us good suggestions on what to order.
There was a game room and big living room with a fireplace.
It is very kid friendly with an extensive play area outside and a beautiful large pool and a nice hot tub.
Our room was very tastefully decorated and we had a nice balcony and watched the sunset. Looking forward to returning!

Beautiful, convenient setting
We were at Rush Creek Lodge just before it closed for COVID-19. This is a great family spot in a beautiful setting just outside the northwest entry to Yosemite. Needless to say it was not crowded, and the service was outstanding. We were treated to a fresh layer of snow before we arrived making it a winter wonderland, and we enjoyed the hot-tub (with social distancing!) while light flurries fell. The restaurant was excellent, a little pricey but reasonable for the resort setting. We would definitely stay again!

During our USA road trip holiday we spent a couple of days at rush creek lodge. Amazing place, brilliant facilities and a beautiful setting close to Yosemite national park, would highly recommend. Heated pool and hot tubs ideal after a long day out walking!
